"This is my first car. I like it quite a bit. It has good speed and power and it is very comfy. It is mainly reliable besides my starter is going bad. It gets bad mileage but it is a old v6 (what do you expect!)"

"this car was bought new by our parents its been handy down from several generations everybody in the family has driven this car. My Taurus which I am last current owner of it still driving at now 367,000 miles nothing never went wrong on her except overheated to due a bad coolant system but my brother replaced it at AutoZone much cheaper instead a service garage for free. It's comfortable with 6 passenger bucket seats, ice cold air conditioner and nice toasting hot heater on cold mornings below 10'F love our vehicle I'm looking at a newer vehicle but give this one to our 21 year old son for getting around in it's been well cared for lots of years. This car is like a will in the family as been a obituary automobile because everybody been taking it over like a free ride but we all loved this car from a great reliability had out of it. I will miss our 1996 Taurus LX after looking for replacement with a more upgraded car but my son who lives in another town couple miles from us is get ready to drive it in his hands hope he doesn't abuse this Almighty Jennifer that is her name she has been a well careful clean ride with younger children at legal ages likes to joy ride in vehicles our son is one of them maybe he'll know this will be a good reliable ride for him until he buys himself a newer vehicle too. Only things replaced batteries, tires, brakes, struts, coolant system, belts and CV joints oil change every 3k miles and fluids doing maintenance time. I highly recommend someone who is looking for a budget car buy a 96 Taurus or Sable these cars are very reliable and solid my coworker used to drive a 97 Sable he got almost 400k miles out his with nothing but oil changes and repairing minor things usual he drove his like drinking water as we did with the Taurus."

This car is a beast! (in a good way)

"This car has to be one of the best I have driven. It actually was amazing in the snow this past winter (when we got a total of 18 inches in two days, it was perfect never got stuck once!) The only con I have is how easily parts can be damaged with the PA roads (seriously the pot holes are horrible here, and its either avoid one deep one or hit several small ones) Overall though this car was so worth putting money into to continue driving it. The handling was spot on, the interior TO ME was a tad blah but hey that can always be changed."

I LOVE this car!!!!

Pros: "Comfy, handles great, powerful engine, fun to drv"

Cons: "weak defrost, seats don't lay flat, foggy headlite"

"She's a real gem! She is comfy, handles great, nice ride, heat cranks (lol), lots of room, versatile, and I feel safe. However, the headlights are foggy, a/c doesn't work, weak defrost means I have to roll down the windows in the rain to clear them ...and the door locks don't always work right, but those are mostly minor issues. I got her when my uncle died and nobody wanted her b/c she was filled to the gills with junk and trash and sitting in a deep mud puddle.. I cleaned her up, named her, and other than the regular upkeep like tires, battery, brakes, etc.. I haven't had to make any serious repairs. She had 81k miles when I got her in 2011, and had just had the transmission done. Between my son and I, we put on 24k more miles (so far!) and she's now at 105,000 miles. I was rear-ended in this car and did get hurt - Thank God I was wearing my seat belt... but it could have been much worse. She took the hit well and the car that hit me was totaled, but she only has minor scrapes and denting on bumper and rear hatch door. I'm Still driving her with a :)"

"I bought this car off my parents and aside from some A/C issues and rust(the car is 16 years old) I haven't had too many serious issues. The rust is contained to the rear wheel wells and the rocker panel. The car has +230k miles (mostly highway) on it and still going strong. 70k of those miles I have added to the odometer. My parents have almost always driven Ford's and when this car finally dies I plan to buy another Ford."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1

"1996 Ford Taurus-- Pros- Maneuverable Nice interior Easy to use- gears and radio, wiper, and controls etc. were easy to navigate Cons- Sound system Weak transmission Overheating-- took it to a couple of mechanics and they could not figure out why it was overheating so much. THis was my daily driver for senior year of HS and into freshman year of college, and it was miserable everyday. I spent a lot of my time driving in the summer with the heater on to keep the engine cool. It lasted a little while, but I ended up selling it as scrap about 5 months owning it. I wanted to love the car, as it was my first purchase, but could not!"
